Features of Our Emergency Department

WakeMed is home to a Level I Trauma Center, North Carolina’s first 24-hour freestanding children’s emergency department, and special areas for minor emergency care, nonemergent care and trauma services. Separate dedicated areas for adults and children help us provide the right care to all generations of patients. Patients can rest assured that the WakeMed Emergency & Trauma Care team has access to the most advanced medical technology. Specialists stand at the ready to meet the needs of all patients seeking emergency care. WakeMed Emergency & Trauma Care services are available 24 hours a day. The WakeMed Raleigh Campus Emergency Department is one of only six Level I trauma centers in North Carolina and serves as a regional referral center. This is the highest designation an emergency and trauma care program can achieve.

Raleigh Campus Adult Emergency Department is a certified Chest Pain Center and is a Primary Stroke Center.

Find ER Care Now

Need Emergency Care? Before you head out, let us know you are on the way. Visit the WakeMed MyChart App (iPhone or Android) and select Find ER Care Now. Choose your Emergency Room, check wait times and let us know you are on the way. We’ll be expecting you.

This new feature allows us to be better prepared for your visit, but it is not an appointment because in an emergency department patients are treated in the order of the severity of their illness. Knowing a patient is on their way and their condition allows our staff to better prepare for your arrival. Please note that if you are experiencing a life threatening emergency, call 9-1-1 and seek care immediately.

Find ER Care Now is for your convenience but not a requirement.


We've got you covered... 
whenever and wherever you need us.

And a Dedicated Children's Emergency Department and Level I Trauma Center.
